  • Shore-end installations
  • Crossing cables
  • Stony seabeds
  • At cable repairs
  • Flowing waters
  • As distance to concrete mattresses and rock berms
  • Normally used at electrical cables up to 36 kV or fibre optic cables.

Product & quantities: 1650 meters Snap Panzar™ 160 mm was snapped around the existing cable by divers to prolong the cables lifetime.

Sub-sea cable in the archipelago

A common application for our half shells protection pipe is the installation of sub-sea cable in or close to the archipelago. It might be to protect the entire distance or part of the distance tough for the cable, such as stony seabeds.

In this video you can take part of an installation which was conducted in 2020 in the archipelago of southern Sweden, just outside of the city Karlskrona. Our cable protection pipe Snap Panzar™ with a diameter of 110 mm was used to protect 1200 meters of the cable. To fixate the cable in desired position at the seabed our accessory weight system, Snap Weight™ of 12 kg, was used to prevent the cable from moving because of the flowing water.

As shown in the video, the Snap Panzar™ split pipe cable protection for sub-sea cable is very simple and effective to install.
